Encouragement for Your Marriage: Marriage is About Finding your Sole Mate Not Your Soul Mate

 

 

"Marriage is About Finding your Sole Mate Not Your Soul Mate" - Gary Thomas


If you have found a soulmate, that's great. Enjoy it while it lasts. 

Marriage is dynamic. What and who you are at 20, is different from what and who you are at 30, and is different from what and who you are at 40 or 70.

For example, failures may change a person for better or for worse. But success may also change a person for better or for worse.

Regardless of whom you married, the fundamental differences between a man and a woman, the differences and habits resulted from the different family backgrounds and childhoods' experiences, etc. will surface in a marriage sooner or later.

What do you do then?

Do you "divorce" away your problems or fight to come closer to each other, to walk with each other?

From the research and surveys of second or third marriages, the grass is NOT greener on the other side. In fact, it only gets worse with second or third marriages.

Do you stay single then?

Every human being's deepest longing is to be known and loved fully and vulnerably, and yet to be fully accepted. Be that for your spouse and you will experience the richest and deepest relationships of all - marriage.

Be willing and be adamant to be a sole mate for your spouse... someone cheerful to walk the life's journey through...

thick and thin, 
in sickness or in health, 
for riches or for poorer.

It takes emotional muscles to do so... and wow, that's true love!

Dear God, in our marriage, help us to walk the extra mile cheerfully with our spouse and be a sole mate for life, living out our marital vow with power and conviction.
